Subject: Format for XACML 2.0 Work Item Proposals


I believe that discussion of XACML 2.0 Work Items will be much
more productive if each Champion will maintain a draft Proposal
in something like the form appended to this e-mail.

The initial Proposal may not have anything other than the header
a schedule for when a PROPOSAL containing a single, agreed-upon
"PROPOSED SOLUTION" must be available in order for the Work Item
to be included in XACML 2.0.  The TC may also set a schedule for
when a DETAILED SOLUTION must be available.

I am happy to continue to maintain the master list of XACML 2.0
Work Items, which will serve as an index to the various

Could we put discussion and approval of some such process on the
agenda for an upcoming TC meeting?

Title:   Format for XACML 2.0 Work Item Proposals
Version: 1.2
Updated: 03/08/14 (yy/mm/dd)

A proposal for a 2.0 work item should contain the information in
the following template.  Plain ASCII text is preferred, but if
this is difficult for the Champion to maintain, then some other
commonly used format is acceptable.  It should be as brief as
possible, while still capturing the necessary information.

The Champion for each Work Item is responsible for maintaining a
draft "Proposal" in this form.  Whenever the information changes
(such as when new issues arise, or when an issue is settled), the
Champion should update the current proposal and send the updated
copy to the XACML mailing list.

The "XACML 2.0 Work Items" list will contain a link to the e-mail
message containing the most recent draft proposal sent to the
XACML mailing list.

  [Why is this change being requested?  Who needs it and for
   what?  Is it based on actual usage experience with XACML 1.x?
   Is it what we have called "syntactic sugar" (simpler or more
   readable syntax) or does it represent new functional
   capabilities that XACML does not currently support at all?]

   on one PROPOSED SOLUTION above.]
